Human Resources reviewed my request for a religious accommodation to Lundbeck’s required “Gender Identity and Transgender” course as part of the overall “It’s All About Respect” training. Please be advised that we have denied your request.
This training is not meant to sway or change someone’s personal beliefs, nor is it meant to affirm an individual agrees, but rather raise awareness around respectful treatment in the workplace and acknowledge Lundbeck’s stance on respectful treatment. There is nothing in the program content that conflicts with the reasoning provided in your accommodation request. To the contrary, it lines up with the training content on the importance of being respectful at work.
I understand you are on currently on PTO and will return on Monday, October 31.While the deadline to complete is Friday, October 28 we will grant you a one day extension so you can complete upon your return to the office.
